How to Register

Registration at Kodiak College is accomplished through a very similar process to registering at the University of Alaska Anchorage

Eligibility

To be eligible to register a student must:

  • Be admitted to the university as a certificate-seeking, degree-seeking, or non-degree-seeking student.
  • Most students must complete Title IX Training. Degree seeking, living in campus housing and/or national/international exchange students are required to complete Title IX: Sexual Assault Prevention training annually. Training cycles run July 1 – June 30. Access the Title IX training website.
  • Some classes require certain placement exams or other prerequisites in order to register. See specific class restrictions in UAOnline
  • Academic Advising
    The goal of academic advising is to assist students in developing educational plans consistent with career and life goals and to provide students with the information and skills needed to pursue those goals. For a list of advising contacts and for more information, visit the Advising page. Advisors may also be indicated in DegreeWorks which is available through UAOnline.
  • Class Schedule
    Current class schedules are available on UAOnline. This schedule is the most up to date and complete class information available.
  • Planning a Schedule

    Student can take advantage of Schedule Planner - an online tool similar to a shopping cart where students may add classes to their cart, block out non-class times and select available schedules. Schedule Planner is available the day the semester schedule goes live.

  • Plan Semester Expenses
    See detailed information about tuition and fees for each semester. Apply for Financial Aid.
  • High School Students Taking College Courses
    Secondary school applicants are admitted as non-degree-seeking students. There is no application fee or deadline for secondary student admission. Secondary students who have applied to the university in a prior semester do not need to apply again.

To apply, new students should:

  • Go to UAOnline and select "Enter as Non-Degree-Seeking Student" under Just Take a Class
  • Select "Enter" under UAA
  • Select the red "New Student" link under Section 2 or the blue "First Time User Account Creation" link located near the bottom of the page to create login ID and password.
  • Choose a campus
  • Choose Secondary School
  • Select the admission term and fill out the application. Each section must have a check mark before submission. For additional time to complete the application, select Finish Later and return another time. Incomplete applications will be deleted after three days.

Please allow 1-2 business days for applications to be processed. Next, search for UA credentials (UA ID number and username) and set a password at the UA Easy Login Maintenance Option (ELMO) site using option 3. 

Before registering for classes, secondary students must submit a Secondary Student Registration Form. UA ID number is required on this form. Submit the completed form to uaa.registration@alaska.edu or in person at Student Services

For additional information, please see the Secondary Student Enrollment Policy or contact the Registrar's Office.

How to Register

Priority Registration

For fall and spring semesters, UAA follows a staggered priority registration schedule based on student class standing. Class standing is determined by total completed and in-progress UAA credits. In-progress credit is credit for which a student is enrolled during the current semester. For example, UAA in-progress fall credits would count toward UAA priority registration for the following spring semester.

UAS or UAF credits count toward UAA priority registration only if they are transferred to UAA.

To check class standing, log in to UAOnline, go to the Students Services and Account Information tab and click on the "Check Your Registration Eligibility" link in the Registration menu.

Registration opens online at 12:00 a.m. on the priority registration day for each student type.

Online Registration
All online registration is completed through UAOnline. The UAOnline site is used to access student records, registration activity and other account information. New users of university online resources can claim their credentials at me.uaa.alaska.edu. All current and former students of the University of Alaska system have a UAOnline account.

Registration remains open 24/7 until the close of registration. Telephone assistance is available during regular business hours at (907) 486-1266

      • UAA is part of a statewide system. Therefore, a hold at one University of Alaska campus will affect registration at all UA campuses.

 

Changing Registration

After finalizing registration, changes may be made during certain periods. Consult Registration Dates and Deadlines for specific periods.

  • Audit-to-Credit or Credit-to-Audit
  • Drop
  • Variable Credit Classes
  • Withdraw
Officially drop or withdraw by the published deadlines if unable to complete a course. Failure to do so may result in a grade of F or NB for nonattendance and may affect financial aid and grade point average (GPA). Classes must be dropped within the 100 percent refund period to avoid tuition assessment. Students may withdraw from classes after the 100 percent refund period. Students cannot withdraw from a class that has been graded.

Audit-to-Credit or Credit-to-Audit


Students who audit courses are required to meet the course prerequisites/restrictions, register by the deadlines, and pay the same tuition as those who take the course for credit. No credit is received for audited courses. Audit registrations are on a space-available basis. Auditors may be dropped from a class to make room for credit-seeking students. Requirements for auditing the course are determined by faculty. Faculty may withdraw auditors if they fail to comply with the agreed-upon terms.

Audited courses are not included in the computation of study load for full-time or part-time status. In addition, students may not request local credit-by-examination for an audited course until the following academic year.

Students who want to audit a course can choose that grade mode option in the UAOnline Register/Add/Drop page when registering for a course or they may fill out the bottom section on the Add/Drop Form before the credit-to-audit deadline. Check Registration Dates and Deadlines for more information.

Drop

Before the semester add/drop deadline, students can drop classes

Full-Semester Classes

A 100% refund of tuition and fees is automatically processed when official drop activity is completed before the add/drop deadline. No refund is issued after the deadline.

Classes with Irregular Dates

Students may drop classes with irregular dates during the 100% refund period, which ends at 5pm five business days after the published class start day. No refund is issued after this period.

Variable Credit Classes

Variable credit courses may be taken for a variable number of credits with prior approval from the faculty member. Common examples include thesis, practicum, project, and research courses. Workload and tuition depend on the number of credits selected.

Students can adjust the number of credits selected for a registered course in UAOnline up until the add/drop deadline by selecting Change Class Options and entering the desired number of credits in the credit hours field. After that deadline, students must submit a paper add/drop form signed by the instructor to the Office of the Registrar and should do so before the end of the semester.

Withdraw

After the add/drop deadline, students may withdraw from classes up until the semester withdrawal deadline as long as no grade has been assigned for the class.

Students may withdraw from full-semester classes using the drop procedures listed above. After the semester add/drop deadline, dropping or withdrawing from classes with irregular dates is not allowed via UAOnline. Students may submit an Add/Drop Form or use the online Student-Initiated Drop Form. Courses that have been graded are not eligible for withdrawal.

Withdrawing from any class will produce a designation of W for that class on the student's transcript. This designation does not carry grade points and is not used in calculation of GPAs. Students are responsible for all fees and tuition if they choose to withdraw from any course, and financial aid could be affected.
